In order to package sensitive devices, precise and sensitive motors are required.
Packaging is an indispensable part of everyday life. The wide range of products that we encounter every day results in the wide range of types of packaging. Not only the functionality and design of the package are important, but also its production. It must be technological feasible with appropriate manufacturing costs. To implement these requirements, innovative, flexible, and fully automated packaging machines are required.
With LinMot linear technology, these machines can be equipped in a very effective manner
The highly dynamic and durable drives ensure high productivity and availability. The programmable drives can be adapted quickly to new products and types of packaging at the push of a button, providing continuous monitoring of motion parameters.
Numerous applications that have already been implemented in the packaging industry demonstrate that drive technology from LinMot significantly increases the production speed and flexibility of the machinery.
In many of these applications, linear motors are used as replacements for pneumatic cylinders, in order to make machines and systems more flexible, productive, and reliable while simultaneously reducing the energy cost for each package. Furthermore, each individual packaging step can be precisely monitored and documented through process monitoring. This ensures the quality of the product.
For processes, where there is direct contact with food, complementary modules are also offered. These are made entirely of stainless steel and use special lubricants approved for foodstuffs. Since linear drives are generally wear-free, no metal particles are released into the air or onto the food.
Online trade is growing and growing. With every completed order, a shipping order is triggered at the same time. In order to offer an optimal solution in terms of sustainability and cardboard consumption, the mechanical engineering company KRAFT has developed the “Kraft VPS100”. Included: linear motors from LinMot.
Sustainability efforts must begin with the engineering of machinery for sustainable production. This is why the machine builders from Saxony trust only the finest in terms of power, adaptability, and sustainability, and use the complete drive solution from LinMot DM01 in their new KKA carton erector system.
Filling and closure processes can be implemented dynamically and flexibly with linear rotary direct motors. That›s why noted packaging machine manufacturer OPTIMA uses them in the closure units for its monoblock and free-standing machines. Another important reason is that the motors directly provide data on the actual stroke and torque values generated for ongoing quality assurance or subsequent process analysis.
Guaranteeing optimal packaging results every time, even when product characteristics vary and product types change frequently, is one of the greatest challenges facing a machine builder. Alpenland Maschinenbau GmbH, or ALPMA for short, has taken on and successfully overcome this challenge.
